SUBREAL is pleased to announce its seventh release, Cruda (SR007) from label co-founder Siete Catorce.
Cruda is full of forms gathered from the producer’s world, sonic articulations that have followed him throughout his life and work: music distortedly blasting through the street, a family dancing cumbia, birdsong from the trees, the psychedelic pitch-blackness found deep inside a rave. Underneath these volatile sound-images lies the fortified, thumping groundwork of sub-bass, rough and distorted textures, and the uniquely bouncy polyrhythms that have characterized his work as a producer.
Siete Catorce is the electronic music project of Mexicali-born musician, Marco Polo Gutierrez, who has become as known for his hybridization of Mexican and Latin-American sounds with deep club sensibilities as his unrepeatable and distinctive rhythmic syntax. He runs the music label Subreal from Los Angeles, California with producer Amazondotcom.
